Welcome to exhibition opening Thursday 26th of February 7PM.
Atelier Nord is pleased to present Kjetil Skøien’s exhibiton Performative Video: Live Actions Made for the Camera at Atelier Nord ANX. Skøien will show 3 performance videos, all performances developed specifically for the video medium.
Inn In the End the Day Came to the Dark Room Skøien explores an abandoned Soviet-era cultural centre in Riga. The video is structured like a memory, a trip back in time to when there where still activities in the building. Hands on Table consists of a choreographed sequence, where Skøien’s arms and legs create a musical and physical performance by hitting a table, limbs seemingly acting autonomously. The third and last video, For Dance Alone, shows a group of mentally and physically handicapped people dancing and moving together in the north of Finland. They explore their physical, bodily possibilities with devotion and sincerity. Read more
